Raw Vegan Macarons

Nourish

Verb: To provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.

Whenever I spend a weekend in Edmonton, I beeline to a sweet little vegan restaurant called Noorish. They make the most delicious berry smoothies, vegan pad thai, vegan poutine (yes, vegan poutine!), black kale Caesar salad…yummmmm….but the dish I fell in love with the most is their raw, vegan mud pie. It’s smooth and silky, rich with dark chocolate and just the right amount of sweetness. Here, let me show you…

After taking a few bites of this rich, creamy dessert, I found myself chasing after the pastry chef, determined to get the recipe. And, I did.

So now I’m going to share this dark, delicious recipe with you! It’s full of anti aging coconut oil and raw cashews, so it’s very rich but rich with good fat. I’ve also changed the recipe from a pie to macarons. I made the pie once and ate the whole thing in one sitting. Oops.  I find I eat less if the dessert is in small pieces. The macarons have been described by one of my taste testers as the bottom of a Nanaimo bar. It’s a good thing.

Raw Vegan Macaroons

  • one cup coconut oil
  • one cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • one third cup Canadian maple syrup
  • one half cup raw organic cacao

Place all ingredients in a blender or Vitamix, blend well.

Form into balls and refrigerate for a few hours. Serve.
